Are you thinking about getting away from the hassle of Christmas this year? Why not come with me (Paul) to Melbourne and around!

When I say Melbourne, we’re staying at the Atura Dandenong, in the south-eastern suburbs of Melbourne, not the city centre. By staying at Dandenong we can easily get to some of the great spots just out of Melbourne. For example, we spend one day in the Dandenong Ranges, including a trip on the Puffing Billy train. On another day we head down onto the Mornington Peninsula – a great area for exploring!

The property we stay at, the Atura Hotel, is fabulous. The rooms are modern and very comfortable (luxurious, even), and the staff there are great too.

This trip is going to be for just a small group, and we’ll be travelling in our smallest vehicle which takes just 20 people. This means we’ll have a great time and it will be easy to get to know each other.

So if you would like to enjoy a hassle-free Christmas with a small group of friendly people, come along on this trip with me! We’ll be away for seven days, from the 22nd to the 28th of December. For more information, read the detailed itinerary here.
